Google employees participate in a walkout to protest how the tech giant handled sexual misconduct in Mountain View, California, on Nov. 1. The mass walkout was sparked by a recent  report by The New York Times that claimed Google gave millions of dollars to some executives in secret exit packages after they were accused of sexual misconduct.

Thousands of Google employees in offices around the world staged a walkout Thursday to protest an alleged culture that fosters sexual harassment at the Mountain View, California-based tech company.

The walkout comes a week after reports from The New York Times that Google protected male executives accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate relationships with subordinates, including then-Google general counsel and now-parent company Alphabet chief legal officer David Drummond.
